Session Title:

Would You Buy Your Own Business?


Session Description:

One of the joys of running and owning a business…is that you run and own your business. In other words, you are the one in control of (and responsible for) what you do, the market you serve, the people involved, and the overall direction of your organization. Many small business owners, however, often struggle with the last point made: overall direction. In addition to the many complexities and responsibilities that come with small business ownership, you must have a clear picture and firm hold on the overall direction of your organization: your long-term aspiration and potential “exit strategy”. Thinking long-term is not always an easy perspective, but it is an important exercise and discipline to embrace. So, “would you buy your own business?”. Asking this question forces you to think through your business’ current state: the good, the bad and the ugly. In this interactive session, James will share some insight and practical approaches to help you navigate some details behind this question, and how this level of perspective may lead to a higher level of professional success and personal fulfillment.


What do you do for fun?

  • Completing my Coast Guard license and sailing instructor credentials.
  • My eggplant lasagna (seriously, it’s no joke.
